Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Truly a tale for all ages that will last for ages. ” Behind the Lens
Celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary, HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE comes to the big screen at TPH!
Catapulting the careers of film-stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, the Harry Potter movies are ones that will be shared for many generations as one of the greatest stories of our time.
Let’s revisit this fantastical story of a young wizard in a big magical world, and start at the very beginning with “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”.
Upon his 11th birthday, Harry Potter (Radcliffe), who lives in misery with an aunt and uncle that don’t want him, learns from a giant named Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane) that he is the orphaned son of powerful wizards. Harry is offered a place at prestigious Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a boarding school for wizards that exists in a realm of magic and fantasy outside the dreary existence of normal humans or “Muggles.”
At Hogwarts, Harry quickly makes new friends Ronald Weasley (Grint) and Hermione Granger (Watson) and begins piecing together the mystery of his parents’ deaths, which appear not to have been accidental after all.
